I had the same problem. Apparently the problem is the main control board. According to the technician that came out to fix mine there is a design flaw and these boards are very sensitive and can blow a circuit or malfunction from the slightest power surge. What happens then is that the control board doesn't "tell" the fan to turn on and off at the right time so the fridge and freezer warm up too much before the fan kicks in and then it cools everything down but since the fan isn't running at the correct intervals and circulating the air all of the cold air settles to the bottom which causes the produce in the drawers to freeze while the top shelves get warmer. I had done a fair bit of research before calling GE and came to the conclusion that this was a common problem. So I pressed them and was able to get the fee for the part waived (before I made the service call appointment) which was around $150. The part now has a 5 year waranty which I find funny, because I'm not sure why it wouldn't have that upfront as my refridgerator is only 2 years old. Whatever!! Unfortunately, unless you have indepth knowledge of refridgerator repair there is no way around the service call and labor. Anyone buying a new model of refridgerator (any company) should consider an extended waranty. The service tech also told me that all refridgerators made after 2001 are required, by law, to have an electronic mother board which in all likelyhood will fail at somepoint prior to when you are ready to buy a new fridge!

Good Lucak!

SOURCE: GE model pds18sbmarbs stainless steel

The evaporator fan motor is located right in between freezer and the fridge compartment on top of item #19. The fan motor can be accessed thru the bottom of the fridge. Click on the following link if diagram below is not clear enough and to get parts names.
To get to the evaporator fan motor, you need to remove item #2 or items #14 & #15 on the graphic depending on your model, to access the evaporator drain pan, item #8, the fan motor is attached to the back of the drain pan.
If you haven't bought the replacement fan motor, you should order it from this site, it is about $30 less than if you order it from GE.

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Refridge is warm, freezer is working fine. There

This is known as the CZT or Climate Zone Technology fan and if you direct wire it and it does not run, replace.
This is the cold zone fan which supplies cold air to the meat and crisper drawers.

My maytag side by side refridge/ freezer gets cold in freezer unit(below zero) but only down to 50 in fridge

That tells me there is a blockage between the freezer side and the freezer side. Look inside the rear of the freezer for a layer of frost building up on the rear wall. If yes then there may be a defrost problem beginning to show. I also need your model number and I need you to look for a vent control on the temperature control panel. See if you can increase the amount of air flow to the refrigerator fresh food section. If not then there possibly is a blockage in the duct that comes from the freezer side. Possibly ice or a damper is stuck closed. You will need to unplug and remove the rear panel in the freezer to confirm this. Try to find your model number and let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool side by side (106.56692501). Refrig was not cooling but freezer is. Freezer is slowly heating up though. Unit is still running. It just isn't blowing air into the refrigerator.

You have ice in freezer fins. You need to remove back panel inside of freezer, melt all the ice replace panel, plug refridge back in. The ice causes bad airflow to the refridge side, causing to heat up.

Cooling coil in freezer compartment froze up

id say your right the unit should defrost for 30 mins of every 8 hours of compressor runnig time now that's not normal time because the thermostat cuts the unit off and on every now and then . the timer for defrost measures how long the compressor runs and it varies with how often the doors are open im sure parts of your defrost system are inoperative send me an e mail with your model number and i will help
